I can'r remember if this is the place where I've been rabbiting on about my TIG course but I completed my last piece for level 1 today. I'd been putting off feeding the wire 'properly', just letting it run down to a stub then stoping my bead and pulling the wire through before restarting.
I got it in my head that trying to learn wire feeding would interfere with me doing my test joints well. But I managed to get the hang of wire feeding within about two minutes and it makes welding so much easier!
Awesome! yeah i found the same. I put it off for ages, then started practising in front of the telly, and now i can do it decently. Tbh i don't use it that much frame building because most of the runs are short, but on bigger stuff its so handy.
